The children thoroughly enjoyed their ‘apple and pear’ learning experiences.  Not only did they find out about the history of the apple they also had the opportunity to sample a variety of apples, rating them on their overall taste and appearance.  Children who may not have liked apple before now do! Meeting a farmer enabled the children to learn about different soil types before planting an apple and pear tree in the school’s orchard.  The children were also able to share new learning with their families, as they all took home a baked apple and an apple bird feeder that they had made.  Overall, the children had a great afternoon and the knowledge they gained will stay with them for a long time to come.
